Bishop Jerry Maynard Bio

After 50 years in ministry he is positively impacting lives and delivering a message across the nation encouraging people to maximize their potential. Bishop Maynard is the former chief operating officer and current jurisdictional bishop of Tennessee Fourth Jurisdiction. Doing the work of an apostle, Bishop Maynard has established and strengthened the churches throughout the Church Of God In Christ for the past forty years.
Bishop Maynard completed graduate and postgraduate studies in Psychology and Social Sciences at Indiana University and the Doctorates Division of Cross Roads Bible College. Bishop Maynard, a native of Indiana, served as Director of the Muncie Indiana Human Rights Commission from 1967-1970, a member of the Indiana and United States Civil Rights Commission from 1970- 1981, and the President’s Domestic Policy Committee from 1977-1983. He is the recipient of the highest civilian award of the state of Indiana, “Sagamore of the Wabash.” A noted speaker, Bishop Maynard has lectured at Ball State University, Taylor University, Indiana and Indiana State Universities, Cross Roads Bible College, Clark University and keynoted the nationally known “Soul Winners” Conference.
His concern for the growth and edification of God’s people extends beyond the church. In 1997, Cathedral of Praise formerly Pentecostal Tabernacle Church began planning for the construction of the new 1800 seat Sanctuary and Worship Center. Bishop Maynard chose Church Builders United, a partnership of minority-owned contractors. In addition, minority and women-owned businesses worked as sub-contractors on the project. Bishop Maynard further insisted that the labor force be made up of a significant number of minorities. Thus, approximately eighty-percent of the laborers working on the construction of the facility were African-American and Latino. Other churches building new facilities are now patterning this model. For his efforts, and his many contributions for the establishment of entrepreneurial enterprises, Bishop Maynard received the “R. H. Boyd Business Advocate of the Year 1999” award.
